Today, Wednesday June 6th, was our third painting session this week, as we worked Monday and Tuesday also, putting the push on finishing the mural. I continued painting the sides of each panel, which is very time-consuming as so much color mixing is involved. And making more protective booties for the corners too. I finished the sunset on panel 6, the last panel. Christine will finish out the sky on the left side, bumping in some sinrise glow on the Space Shuttle and accompanying contrail and clouds. Below is the sunrise along with Christine's turtle. There will be some baby turtles in there soon, as they float in on top of the water on a bed of seaweed.

More to come, as I find the other images on 3 devices plus whatever other pics Christine sends me. Oh, and one of the devices is my old camera, which I finally found today at the Artists Guild Gallery.
OK, got the pictures, and below are a couple of photos Christine had taken from her i-phone ~

We are very grateful for all Rob's and other staff's efforts in trying to keep the canvas panels out of harm's way for a whole year. Not a minor inconvenience for them. And now, so close to being installed, we're almost there. They will be beautiful and interesting, and will look spectacular along with the other 36' mural with both of them reflecting in the mirrored wall opposite from where they will be installed.
So stay tuned for the finishing touches.
